London, UK

Earlier this month BlackLeaf Events were invited along to Dandelyan to celebrate the UK launch of Maker's 46 - the second expression from the Maker's Mark distillery. We were then asked to head over to Harrod's in London to sample the product to shoppers in store where the product is currently exclusive in the UK.

Maker’s 46 starts its life as fully matured Maker’s Mark; carefully-seared French oak staves are inserted into the barrel, allowing the caramelised wood sugars to intensify. Aged only during the winter for a slower maturation process, the result is an complex blend of rich caramel and vanilla notes with a long and smooth finish. Maker's 46 is bottled at 47% - 2% higher than regular Maker's Mark.
